“Just Awful!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

While the dinosaurs might be "to scale," this "park" is anything but educational. The T Rex has no teeth and resembles Barney. The area is not handicap accessible and the stairs are quite steep. I have to say the view from the top of the mountain is beautiful and panoramic. If you go, bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the view. Lower your expectations on the dinosaurs.

“What a View!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Even if you are not much into seeing dinasours this is definitely the place to go to get a beautiful view of Rapid City. Hang out and watch the sun set. An excellent place to watch fireworks. Be aware of running into people who hang out there drinking, but the times that I have been there this has only been an issue once. Overally a great place to see and I have always felt safe.

“A great pit stop”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

It isn't so much a "park" as it is just some really cool dino statues. Its a quick fun little stop, great for kids and families. It is a great spot to stop for a restroom, a snack, or just to stretch your legs.

“Great to see”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Most beautiful view of Rapid City! Short stair climb to the top to see the dinosaurs and it's FREE. Even if you aren't into the dino thing, it is most definitely worth stopping by just before dusk to see the views of the city. We didn't get to visit the gift shop because we arrived as they were getting ready to close, but they do offer various souvenirs (mostly dino I think) and a snack bar. A must see for any dinosaur lover of any age!!
